TCC Amicus Brief: Mandatory Paid Sick Leave

The Texas Conservative Coalition has filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court of Texas urging the Court to affirm that the City of Austin’s paid sick leave ordinance violates the Texas Minimum Wage Act. The Texas Legislature has expressly rejected increases to the state’s minimum wage because it hurts businesses, workers, and the state’s strong economy. Cities should not be permitted to circumvent state law with opportunity-killing local ordinances.
